Two previously unseen photographs of Prince George and Princess Charlotte with King Charles have been revealed for the first time in a new documentary about the monarch.

The pictures, thought to have been taken in 2016, were spotted in the BBC film Charles R: The Making of a Monarch, which aired on Sunday night.

One of the photographs shows King Charles, who was then the Prince of Wales, pointing towards something out of frame while sat next to Prince George.

The monarch and his eldest grandson are seen at a picnic table with glasses of juice, with the young royal wearing a navy T-shirt, and Charles in pinstripe suit with a teal-coloured tie.

The second photograph spotted by eagle-eyed royal fans shows Princess Charlotte as a baby, smiling as she is entertained by Charles, who holds something up for her to look at.

The pictures featured during a previous interview with Charles, in which he explains how his concerns for the future generation fuel his passion for the environment.

"I mind so much about the future, what we're going to leave to our children and grandchildren," he said. "That's what really gets me going."

The images were met with delight by royal fans on social media, with one writing: "So nice to see this cute relationship that King Charles has with his grandchildren."

"Grandpa King is adorable!" another said, "It's very precious".

While a third added: "Look how adorable they are. He is such a wonderful grandpa! So glad they have him around and vice versa."

In other footage of Charles, captured when he was 18, the monarch says: "I like to think of us more as a family rather than as a firm. I tend to think of my family as very special people.

"And, in that sense, I'm only beginning to see my parents and the rest of my family as other people, do you know what I mean? That you look upon them as having their own different characteristics."

It comes in the run up to Charles' coronation on May 6, which will see the monarch formally crowned in Westminster Abbey.
